Rock Climbing

Distance from Laie:25.7 Miles (41.377 km)
Gear Needed:   Rope, Harnesses, Climbing Hardware

There is one really good location for outdoor rock climbing on Oahu. The climbing wall has about 40 routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.13 in difficulty. Most of the routes have twine strung through them so you can pull your climbing rope through and thus leed climbing is not required.   At the climbing site you will find a large gear box with a map and description of each route.
The rock climbing wall is located on the North Shore side of Kiana point near the Mokuleia area.  Follow the blue arrows on the maps below to get around Haleiwa and onto Farrington Hwy. Drive down Farrington past dillingham airfield and along the beach for a few minutes. Toward the end of the road you will pass a YMCA camp on your right and the trail to the climbing wall will be to the left shortly after you pass the YMCA camp. The image at left is the start of the trail. It will lead up the mountain side to the base of the cliffs (about a 20 minutes hike).
